I'm much too old for Barbies - but my two daughters had a bunch of them - and Skipper and all their friends - I think one was Madge. I knitted tiny sweaters on round toothpicks and made them tie dyed clothes and polyester pant suits - and all sorts of things - what fun we had.
I was trying to find the sweaters my mom knitted for my Barbie and Skipper, I know I have pix of them somewhere here in the ether....I still have an old Ken, stiff body type, but not sure about an old Barbie, though I do have the swimsuit!
I had a flat-chested Skipper. We were poor, so my folks got her at a garage sale. For Christmas one year I got that and an assortment of little wigs as well. For some reason I remember an extra head as well. I had such fun prying her head off and replacing it, shades of that horrible child Sid in Toy Story!
Never cared to play with dolls at all, too busy reading! I saw somewhere on the web today that a new revamped barbie has been issued for the occassion.bigger boobs and longer legs yet if you can believe it. Love the background of your blog. Sharyn/KalamaQuilts
